Ljubljana, 20 December 2023 – The Ministry of Cohesion and Regional Development has approved EU funding for the project On-the-job training.
As part of this EU-funded project, the Employment Service of Slovenia will seek to strengthen the knowledge, abilities, skills, and competences of unemployed persons whose skill sets do not make them directly employable. In doing so, the Employment Service of Slovenia will build on the local labour demand. On the one hand, the project will contribute to reactivating the long-term unemployed, the unemployed at a high risk of long-term unemployment, the low-educated, and older persons. On the other, the delivered concrete training programmes, tailored to the specific needs of employers, will help reduce the structural imbalances in local labour markets.
The project will be implemented under Slovenia’s Cohesion Policy Programme 2021-2027, under the ESF+ specific objective Improve access to employment and activation measures for all jobseekers in the labour market, in particular young people, especially through the implementation of the Youth Guarantee, for long-term unemployed people, disadvantaged groups, and inactive people, and promote self-employment and the social economy.
The project is worth 21,358,534 euros; it will receive support from the European Social Fund+ amounting to over 16 million euros, more specifically 16,243,453.82 euros.
